KARACHI: Former Sindh Chief Minister Arbab Ghulam Rahim on Thursday took the media by surprise when he announced that Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) chairman Bilawal Bhutto Zardari would soon join the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz.

Addressing the media outside the Sindh Assembly, Rahim quipped about the possible scenario, while reminding the media about Pakistan Muslim League-Functional (PML-F) chief Pir Pagara’s prediction of Bilawal leaving his inherited party for the N-League.

He also stressed that the stance of the Muttahida Quami Movement and PML-F would remain same for the benefit of Sindh.

Earlier, reports of an alleged rift between the President Asif Ali Zardari and Bilawal began to surface after Bilawal reportedly decided against addressing PPP workers on Foundation Day because of his differences with PPP’s central leaders regarding the party’s stance vis-à-vis the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N), PPP officials told The Express Tribune.

    Arbab: Don’t create panic.

    The day Bilawal will join PML-N, it will be a complete death of PPP in Pakistan, as well as in the entire world wherever it has overseas offices.

    Is it to safeguard 15 year plan with PPP and PMLN democracy ? If this can happen then for sure “Everything is possible in this World”.

    If he is interested in joining a new emerging party then it makes a sense to some extent otherwise joining plm(n) or any other conventional party would be a political suicide for him.

    This is an episode of the continued evil propaganda against PPP and Bilawal.

    With PTI suffering from internal bickering, total leak of deliverance in KPK, and it’s leader busy in honeymoon with a wife who’s habitual liar, PPP has a breathing room to revive itself.

    What is difference between PPP and PMLN? They are same, just indulge in cosmetic conflict right before elections. Don’t you know who supported Nawaz the most during the recent crises — and in return who prepared 70 dishes dinner for Zardari? Both PPP and PMLN are one party sharing common ideology of loot, plunder, family politics. If Bilawal joins PMLN is just like visiting cousins’ party.

    It is surprising how an ordinary ruling classes politician can put us on speculating about the future of the same class politician. Do we have other constructive things to do or take hold of this country ourselves?

    I am not sure if it possible on religious grounds, but if bilawal could marry Ms. Marium, Pakistan ownership could forever stay with PPP and PMLN.

    To me, it seems like it’s all part of the plan for Zardari family. They’re spreading strategic runners to present that Bilawal has a strong personality and can take bold decisions. At the moment, parting ways from his father and some other failed PPP politicians only makes him look better in public eyes. In conclusion, Zardari family is playing a very clever game to continue the politics of Zardari.
